Valor has launched Valentia, a new balanced flue gas fire which combines impressive efficiency with powerful heat output to provide affordable warmth for those homes that do not have a chimney.
Available in a classic black design with chrome finish, the Valentia gives specifiers the opportunity to deliver safe, cost-effective heating for any property, with no need for a chimney.
Combining an impressive heat efficiency of 88% with a 3.57kW heat output, the glass fronted living flame effect model is fitted with heat exchanger technology and can be either floor or wall mounted for added flexibility. It also boasts electric ignition for ease of use.
The top-positioned electronic control offers a choice of four heat options and a disability-friendly control handle comes as standard.
Tracey Falshaw, product marketing manager for Valor, said: “Balanced flue fires are proving increasingly popular as they can enable those homes without a chimney to enjoy the benefits of gas fires, which have become the ‘heart’ of the British home.
“With around 20 million UK households relying on gas for their heating and hot water it makes sense that they also use natural gas, which is still the lowest cost fuel supplied for the same kW usage, to provide real flames and unbeatable atmosphere in a focal point fire.
“Balanced flue models can offer some of the highest efficiencies available on the market and the Valentia will meet this demand for safe and stylish balanced flue designs, giving another option in the extensive Valor range of affordable heating solutions.”
